Fiendmaster Minutes 2022-05-23

Howdy, folks. I have a few announcements regarding the podcast, The Black, and my professional narration career.

TLDR Summary

  • Station 3 is now available in ebook, paperback, and audiobook
  • The Black audiobooks will be re-produced by Fireside Audio
  • All public versions of The Black (podcasts/YouTube episodes, etc) will be removed by June 15th
  • The new versions of The Black audiobooks will be podcasted again in the future
  • Station 3 podcast begins June 1st, 2022
  • I am retiring from professional voice narration

New novel Station 3 Released

My new standalone novel, Station 3, is now available in audiobook (directly from me), as well as ebook and paperback from Amazon.com. Go to the links for a description of the book.

The Black Rights and Re-release

First off, the good news–I have my rights back for the series.

Secondly, I’ll be re-releasing all the books in the series, including releasing Evolution,(2023), Oceania (2024) (in serialized progress), as well as the final book, Extinction (2024), which have never before been published in any retail locations.

Thirdly, new artwork is being designed by none other than Scott Pond and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with.

Fireside Audio will produce the new audiobooks

Audiobook production house Fireside Audio will be producing new versions of the books, narrated by Joe Hempel. This is the first time in many years I’ve outsourced one of my properties, especially something as popular as this series, and I’m quite excited to hear how the series turns out when voiced by a real professional.

Series Podcasts and Youtube Videos Removed

In the coming weeks, I’ll be removing the entire The Black series from both my podcast feeds, itunes channels, and YouTube. If you’re still burning through the publicly available episodes, I suggest you download and archive them because once they’re gone, you’ll never see them again.

Is the podcast dead?

No. In fact, the current plan is that once The Black audiobooks end their Audible exclusivity, I’ll be able to podcast them an episode at a time, in order, as one, long, complete, story. The entire series. The entire f’ing series!

But before we jump down that hole, let’s talk about what’s coming up in the too near future: Station 3.

Station 3 Podcast Schedule

Station 3 will begin its podcast run on June 1st, 2022. It’ll run for roughly thirty weeks. I’ll post the links for to the podcast when it comes time.

End of the road for my voice…sort of

I’ll be honest with you–my health has been declining for some time. I have COPD, suffer from severe allergies, and my hearing is diminishing by the year. These bad days suck all the life out of me and about the only productive thing I can do is write, nap, and write some more.

These attacks, which usually leave me wheezy for days, make it next to impossible to record. For someone whose livelihood has mostly lived and died via his mediocre audio production skills and narration, it’s a terrifying reality. Since we’re being honest, I’ve heard I needed to stop a long time ago. Why? So I can write. And write. And write.

In addition to the breathing issues, I can no longer hear in certain ranges. This makes audio editing a stressful, fucking nightmare. I just can’t do it anymore. Not for a professional product that I want to stick my name on. It’s time to move on.

For as long as I’m able, I plan to continue narrating for my Patreon Patrons, Ko-Fi subscribers, and Buymeacoffee members. They’ll continue to get more or less the final draft narration of new works as well as the serialized version of the unpublished The Black novels (Oceania and Extinction).

I’ll continue to voice the intro/outros for the podcasts, as well as the occasional essay, and review, but expect more blogging from me than those podcasts. I’ll do my best to continue as long as I can.

Talk to you June 1st!

As I mentioned earlier, Station 3, begins its podcast run on June 1st. On that day, you’ll get all the obnoxious details. Also, I might have a surprise for you. We’ll see.

Cheers.
